Following the Pilot's debut during Preview Night at Comic-Con last month, it was confirmed that Weather Wizard is the pilot episode villain, but it isn't clear if he is coming back for multiple episodes.

The pilot also teased a few other classic DC characters such as Professor Zoom and Gorilla Grodd. We reported last month that Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) will be appearing in the fourth episode, which offers the origin story for both Captain Cold and his group of villains known as the Rogues.

Other characters confirmed to appear during Season 1 are Robbie Amell as Firestorm and Kelly Frye as Plastique.
